Bitcoin’s (BTC) recent plunge under $8,000 to tap $6,800 has done numbers of the sentiment in the cryptocurrency industry. As a popular trader, Crypto Michael, noted in a recent tweet, the Bitcoin Fear & Greed Index recently printed a 23, which is on the “extreme fear” side of the oscillating indicator.

“Human psychology tends to be predictably irrational because many people tend to react similarly in certain contexts… Baron Rothschild made a fortune by buying when others sold in panic. His philosophy was to ‘Buy when there’s blood in the streets.’ Because the greater the fear — the larger the opportunity for profit.
With that in mind, is there any chance at Bitcoin bouncing?

Will Bitcoin Bottom?
According to a number of analysts, for sure.
An analyst that goes by “Salsa” noted that Bitcoin and Ethereum’s three-day charts printed the same extremely bullish candle pattern: a swing failure pattern “below major liquidity pools on the three-day time frame.” He noted that this contributes to the idea that BTC “bottomed on a macro scale.”
/3 $ETH and $BTC closed as bullish SFPs below MAJOR liquidity pools on D3 time frame. This week will be interesting, CME Monthly close Friday ?. Still think there is a decent chance we're bottoming on macro scale. Fully invested again on spot exposure, will scalp till CME close. pic.twitter.com/lAo5xQkvRF

Also, Dave the Wave, an analyst who called the drop to $6,700 months and months ago, said that there is a confluence of technical factors that suggest a long-term bottom was put in at $6,700.
This confluence includes but isn’t limited to the three-year moving average—which currently sits in the low-$6,000s—is where BTC historically has found support in early bull markets and the fact that the cryptocurrency has bounced off the 0.5 Fibonacci Retracement level of the $3,200 to $13,800 range, implying bottoming price action.
